Mattiin r positive had transpired relative to the pro ceedings of the Conference, but is was generally be Wvsd that a treaty of peace would be signed about the 1Mb. Prussia had been invited to participate i? the deliberations, and Bacon Monteuffel and M. Hatziield had been appointed as her representatives. Tbe rectification of territory and other details were to be referred to a commission. The prospect of peace had led to much speculation in France, and a baancial explosion, sooner or later, was regarded as teavitahle. Sickness prevailed in the Fren:h and Jtas&ian armies in tbc Crimea. In the Baltic the Bnglish squadron was working its way into the tfulf of Finland. A naval expedition against Per ?ta had been despatched from India. Mr. Dallas ar med at Liverpool on the 11th, and was presented with an address by the American Chamber of Commerce. The excitement respecting the questions at isme with the United States had entirely died oat. Coitttols are quoted ''??{ a I'-;. Cattoa dull, jnd We-odstuffs firm.

The forces of Tamirez do not amount to inoie than 3,000 men. lTraga and his officers were be tent to Acapulco for safe keeping. General Al varez is living quietly at hi* nine he, a short dis tance from that place. The House of Representatives yesterday, after a warm discussion, referred the bill defining the rights ?t voters in Washington to the Committee on the I?**rM:t of Columbia. Mr. Lane introduced a bill appropriating $300,000 to secure the services of friendly Indians against the savages in Oregon and Washington Territories. According to accounts from that region. there is imminent danger of the white settler* being exterminated by the hostile tribes, and it is believed that the friendly Indians are the only force which can successfully cope with t.h?m. The chairman of the Committee of Way* and Means assured the Hou^e that the bill should receive immediate attention. The proceedings of the Legislature yesterday were nnnfuajiy important, and we cannot do better than refer our reaaders to the extended reports gnve n on the first page for the particulars. The British commanding at Rio Janeiro, having suspected an American merchant s'eamship. i&teiy arrived in port, of being a Radian privateer, iuade ready to give her chaw when bhe left This caused some diflerenoe for a time with Commodore Mercer, coacmanding the United States squadron.

The Legislative Committee having under investi gation the tenant bor.gPs of New York, held a meet ing yesterday, and heard statements of several jrarties relative to the best plan for the future :on st ruction of tenant houses. A substitute far brick was submitted, for whi h was claimed superior ?tr^ngth and beauty over ordinary brick, besides, by means of air ehamliers, uffording good ventila tion through the buildings in which it is used. A general house agent and snb-ageat of one of the most crowded and filthy row of tenant ho i*es in the riry were bronght before the committee and sub jected to a rigid examination as to the general let t>ng and ejectment of tenants from the buildings. The committee sit again this morning, when they will terminate their investigation.

Baokwu'i Bpeeefc at MMkall. The Lord Major of London, having boon disappointed in hit first attempt to give Mr. Buchanan a dinner, in consequence of the lat ter having been invited on the earn* day to dine with the Queen, renewed the endeavor with better success a few days afterwards, and en tertained the American Minister, together with a iarge party of gentlemen and noblemen, at the Mansion House on the 11th instant Mr. I Buchanan was the guest of the evening. When he rose to return thanks for hie health, he de livered one of those graceful, terse and matter full speeches for whioh he is so noted. He said that he had met no one in England wfio had not treated him as though he were a countryman, and however widely he had differed in opiniou from the Englishmen he had met, he had always parted from them in peace and friendship. He considered that a war between England and the United States would irreparably injure the cause of civilization and human liberty; that despots would gtoat over it ; and he trusted in God and believed that the day would oome when all the dissensions whioh have ever exist ed between the two countries would have paired away. This was the point of his speech. We can not pass it over without congratulating the country on its good fortuue in hiving a Mi n ister manly enough and generous to use such language within heariug of tbe very statesmen with whom he has been engaged in so warm an international contest. There is not mush, perhaps, in these stereotyped expressions of friendship and kindliness ; but when Mr. Buchanan's position is remembered, especially when the arduous and irritating nature of his controversy with the British government is called to miud, they will really be seen to pos sess no common importance and to reflect no paltry credit on their author. Compare them I with the language of Mr. Marcy in his des patches, ree how bitter and craboed the latter is; or with Mr. Pierce's messages, in which rue dedre to embroil the two countries Ls as conspicuous as Mr. Buchanan's wish to keep them united. Or compare them with the grand speeches of Lords Palmerston and Clarendon, In which (to pass over the actual misstate ments of fact) they seem to try how insult ing they can be and by what art they oan best stir up the British blood to make war upon America. How pitifully email these wretched pollticiins look, to be sure, by the side of the people of both countries ? There is a passage in Mr. Buchanan's speech we have not quoted. It runs as folio -vs: ? It i? ImpoMiblf ? and 10 tar from there being any jev icnfy? fo lar !rom lta being proper that there should oe *Ly jea.'ousy in either coun'ry as to th? honest and fair ex'.enaicn of the frontiers of either, it cng'at to be c >n aideitd k. blessing to mankind that th?y should have the oppcjtuiii'y of txtf tding their freedom aad liberal msti Su'icjm ever all the unneUiad parte of the earth. (Cheers ) This is a sentence pregnant with sound meaning. The reproof it administers applies nor? justly to England than to this country, for we are net in the babitof concerning ourselves much abcut British acquisitions away from our immediate neighborhood; and though we do make a little stir when the Ea?t India Com pany annexes with a stroke of a pea a kiag dum like Oude, half as large as Nicaragua, cur attention is arrested less by the bare fact of the annexation thin by its obvious conse quences, namely, the refusal of freedom aud | liberal institutions to the people of the aunex I ed country, their retention in a state of vassal age, and the extortion ot a large revenue from then: liy British officials? a plan, which, what ever le its abstract merits, differs so widely <"rom our o-vn as naturally to challenge notice ft'e are not aware that any oae in this country has ever complained of the seizure of island* by the British government? a thing whioh do*a happen once in a while ? or of the spread of British power and influence in Australia, or <. the quiet manner in which the Chinese wei crowded out of Chusan, and so on. Not thu we claim any particular merit for our forbear ance in these respects; the true cause was ul doubted ly our preoccupation elsewhere. Our transatlantic cousins, who hive more time on their hands, and who naturally as O't seniors feel a good deal of uneasiness and re "nonei'oiiity about our behaviour, pursue a l" 'v\" 1 ^n, and grieve deeply at eacb ex pans on o i- ? untry# They bewailed thj purchase of a. ? . ... # -.they sorrowed over the acquisition of Fiona-' ho7yled at the annexation . of Texas ?they 1 ? "f-o con vulsions when the possibility bf oar au^ Cuba, Mexico or Central Aahrica to tl j Union, is mentioned. Is it tien so desperat ly injurious a thing to England that t ' Anglo-Saxon race should spread over this ce | tin ent, carrying with it freedom, and energy, and liberal institutions, and enterprise, an 1 free trade? Has England been so ruinously afleeted by the building up of New Orleans, which now does so large and profitable a trad with Liverpool and London? Would it huv ? been better for England that New Orlean had remained a cul <k tac. without life, energy, products or foreign commcrie.' Apply "he principle to Cuba. There is a magnify | island, exactly the same size as Ireland, a m capable of supporting a population of ten mil lions without difficulty. It ought to be >J richest spot in the Western hemisphere. It is a wretched sickly place, where abjit a million of Spaniards vegetate uu der the most oppressive constitution ev J do vised by despotism and carried, out by avarice and folly. They will not work. Tuey can lie in the shade, smoke segars, and grow rich; and they do. They want no rebellion? not they. Hence their resources lie undevel oped. Their flour, their maiufactures, their books, their foreign goods all come from Spain, at an enormous cost* they could get them cheaply from England or the United States: but, ah! It is too hot tor them to rebel, and life is too short. So reason Uie Cubauo3, Now if that island belonged to the United States, instead of containing a million ot whites, It would soon contaio five; Instead of pro ducing tw vnty five millions of dollar*, it would produce a hundred, and an opening would be afforded for the employment of capital, such as thi world hardly offers. Now would the United States be the only country to gain from all this? Wduld not England, with her ships, her trade, her consumption of sugar, and her idle I'Bpital, derive some benefit from the operation? Gentlemen of Lombard and Leadenhall streets, what ?<*y you? The question has a purely speculation interest just now; but It may come up again. Will it then be felony to annex the Queen of fbe Antilles? Winter MMl Its Otnw* r ? Lugt FkMOTVMMta. The part winter bu been terribly prolitc of disasters on eea and land, and particularly so on the former. Never before have we been called upon to record so many shipwrecks during one brief season, or suoh fearful da & traction of human life; bnt fearful as that de struction has been, we fear eur sad dutj is not yet ended, and that we will have still more to chronicle. ? large number of vessels bound to this and other ports in the United 8Utes have not jet been heard from, although mostly all ol them have been out from one to two months beyond the time of their expected ar rival. From the list of these which we sub join, and which we have compiled with great care, it appears that there are sixty altogether which have not been heard of up to the pre sent date. Of these, the Celiua from Havre for New Orleans, is out ever three months and three wetks; the thiuago, from Liverpool for New York, eiuce the 11th of Deoember; the Mary Lee, from Gibraltar also to this port, since December 26; the Eastern Belle, from Newcastle for Boston, sinoe January 4; the Herald. from Havre for the same port, since January 2; and the ship Venus, from New castle for New Haven, since the 4th of the same month.

" Jan. 12 The excessive severity of the weather, the intense, protracted cold, the violent gales, and ?he greaf enow storms, with the obstructions eauBcd to navigation bj the immense fields of ice and icebergs which have been seen as far i-outh as latitude 42 dcg. 43 mln. North, longi tude 50 deg. 28 min. West? all these will ac count to some extent for the detention of th* missirg vessels. Old and experienced sea captains have iold us they never saw the occan so much obstructed with ice below a certain latitude as it has been during the past, winter, and at so early a period of the seaso { They have found it utterly impossible toavoiu it, and have been In it for several days before thty could extricate their ships. The steam ships have encountered strong westerly gain* on the parage, and have been more or i ( detained by icebergs. Every vessel that ar rives brings confirmation of the reports we have published from time to time in regard the dangers which have attended navigat ? during the last two or three months, aua which have signalized this year particularly as a year of disasters and calamities on tac Up to . January last, the winter was unusually ^ oa evonl of that day a tremendous sno* ^ wt in wh<ch extended from Washington City to ? nf%. ? and which was accompanied by a gale. l-J was during this storm that the schooner Paci fic, the Spanish bark Duke de Braganza, and aa unknown brig were wrecked on the Jersey coast, and over thirty lives lost. The Duke de Braganza went to piecee and no tra:e wa? ever found of her officers, passengers or crew. To these were soon after added over a dozen other vessels which were wrecked along, or in the immediate vicinity of, our coast. These were succeeded bj accounts of others which had gone down out in the mid dle of the octan, among which was that of the New York packet ship St. Denis, which foundered in lat. 38, long. 72, on the Gth of January last. Of those on board this vessel, numbering forty two persons, thirteen of whom were passengers, only eleven were saved, and thete were all members of the crew. The greatest suffering waa caused by the cold, and a jBrge nnmbtr were literally frozen to death, *hiie others were so affected by it as to ren der amputation of the feet and hands necessa ry to preserve their lives. The only shipwreck which so far as we hxrt yet heard of as having been actually cau? ,d b.? the ice, was the John Rutledge, which was lost on the 20th ot February by coming in colliflloa with an iceberg. Her crew and pwengers. to the number of one hundred and twenty, took to the boats, but only one was saved, and the story of his sufferings during a period of nine dajp, in an open boat, surrounded by ice, and four days of which be ?aa without folor wlt< r, is one of the mott painful recorded in the history of marine disasters. Wo trust thai tl is is the only ship which has been wrecked In the ice, but it would be vain to imagine that all have parsed through it uninjured. To it we must in the absence of positive ? in the absence of any? information on the subject, attribute any di'nster that has happened to the musing steamship Pacific. The Caese of the Slave at the North. ? A few days since we notioed the sale of twenty two slaves, the property of Cassias M. Clay, of Kentucky, who has beea shrieking for free dom for the past twenty yean, more or less. In commenting on that fact, we took occasion to say that the abolitionism of the North was purely theoretical and political. We have a still more striking proof of this in the news of the capture of the schooner Maria EL Smith by the Brazilian brig- of- war Olinda. The Ma ria E. Smith is a sharp, rakish, clipper-built vessel, which formerly ran as a passage boat between Boston and Halifax. Last autumn she was fitted out in Boston for the slave trade, and so publio was her errand that she was seised by the United States authorities, but escaped by showing her light heels to the revenue outter. On the coast of Africa this vessel, fitted ont by anti-slavery Boston mer chants, took on board five hundred negroes? she had only accommodations for two hun dred?and the deaths on board and immedi ately after landing amounted to two hundred and fifty. * This is doing pretty well for the North which the Seward papers tell us is unanimous for freedom in Kansas. If the anti slavery North thought it could make a cent out of sla> ?very in Kansas or anywhere else, it would go in for it with all the barbarity of the master

and owners of the Down East schooner above Eluded to. It Is a fact which cannot be gainsayed, that the slave trade is carried on by Northern men almost exclasively ? the great depots being Salem and Boston. No one ever hears o i a slaver being fitted out at the South. The trade is there considered dis graceful, and even the domestic elavedealer is looked upon with disgust. Several well inform ed writers on the oondition of the Southern States, inform us that Yankee overseers are im ported expressly because they get more work out of the slaves, and that there is no master so cruel as the Northern abolitionist who acquires slave property by marriage. The real faot of the matter is that niggerism has paid a few men at the North pretty well, and large num bers of others have been induced to use it as a stepping etone to political preferment. Their success has varied, aocording to the elasticity of their consciences, the length of tbeir tongues, and the gullibility of the people they have endeavored to humbug. Gen. Wool in Oregon. ? We see that some of the Oregon papers are abusing General Wool for what they call his inactivity in the present campaign. It appears that the Oregonlana provoked the war on Rogue river, aad not satisfied with that, they got up a war in the Walla Walla country. General Wool refusal to prosecute the last named war, being fully aware that there is no glory to be gained in an Indian fight compared to the risk which his command must run. The San Francisco pa pers, which may b9 considered unprejudiced, and at the same time well informed, assert that the charges made against General Wool are false in every particular. There may be a cat under the meal here. The Territorial officers of Oregon are Eastern politicians ay i pointed by Mr. Pierce, and General Wool's name may come before the Cincinnati Conven tion. The whole matter will soon come up in j Congress, and then we shall see what we shall see. Photograph of a Nigger Worshiping Know Nothing.? A Worcester (Mass ) corres pondent of the Irith American gives an account of a meeting in that city to annihilate the Pope of Rome aad the State of Missouri, and eaja:? Mr. Flagg 'hen informed the an lenoe be had the plea sote of introducing a champion Of Americanism, Mr. Ferry. Whereupoa this poMsu, who had been seat ed in the platform, enveloped 'in a cloak, adv&nod in front, threw off the cltiak with a semi-tragic air, and ap peartd in a mili ary frock with shining butt mi, then unrolled a LPat American Hag, which toe audience were informed ?h presented the speaker by Sam's daughter; next prod need a handsomely gilt pocket Bible, wiuci tun anrieroe were told had al?o been presented by Sam ' daughters to the speaker; this was laid open on the desk, then cune the climax. "and this," said Mr. Perry, in a voire meant to speak in thoader tones, putting his band on bis M?(ird hilt, and unsheathing that dangerous wm pco. "this will defend ths two tormsr from prieutcrif ntd slavery." Then mat ing a furious thrust in the ai: meant for the Pope, which, Tf that much dreaded gentle man had toon present, wonld have suhjMtod him tc ventllatirg process, he paused, klr. Perry then laid th Fword across the Bi Die and flag, fixed his belt and tpyko of Amtricsniem and Kansas. This is all very well iu a city where two hundred men assault an unarmed officer of tV? United States; but why don't Perry air lu& valor in St. Louis or the Holy City. Put oat, Perry; such bravery never ought to be allowed to xust in the rural distriots. A Call from Yocng America. ?

Not long ago the Union publifhed an article upon the coming Presidential contest, in which it was declared that the policy of that veracioui sheet, as to candidates, would be strictly neu tral. "As a specimen of what the Union under stands by this, we notice that it Is careful to publish proceedings of meetings where any thing kind is said of Mr. Tierce; but when reao ' lutions have betn adopted favoring Iiuchanau (j ? Douglas, subject to the decision of the con vention, the Union has positively refused to print or even notice them. The Union1 ? idea of neutrality is to support Mr. Pierce for the succession. We donrt know that It ia so tar out ol th? way. Late Hours ra New York Society. ?Some time sinee the proprietor of a smell penny paper gave a feed end a dance to hie em ployee, tending them all home at eleven o'clock P. M. Straightway it vu announced la the penny journal that good aooiety in New York had come to the conclusion that things were getting in a bad way in consequence of the late hours now so fashionable, and that the usual hour for partiee, from ten till tiro, had been changed, and that the beau monde now went at seven and returned at eleven. This piece of news has gone the rounds of the press, and we are sorry to Bay that there is no truth in it. Young New York still stays out all night till broad daylight, and if any of our young friends from the interior, deceived by the penny paragraph, should go to a party at seven, they would be obliged to spend three hours in the contemplation of their boots, which would be neither amusing nor instruc tive. Awful as the announcement may be, it is nevertheless a fact that fashionable New York is as bad as ever. Let us hear from the Churchman on this subject, that is if the editor has got through with the women's flirtations in the church choirs. Latest News from Kentucky. ?
